Re: “(Not) For Profit

Due to one person's decisions to end the working relationship with MRI Center of Idaho, the entire staff at St. Alphonsus is getting the short end of the stick. We come to work every day and treat all of our patients with the utmost respect and care. If the Boise Weekly would like to write bashing articles on this hospital then I would encourage them to get their facts straight. In reading this article there are many incorrect names. Some the "groups" do not even exist. Also, MRI Center of Idaho is partially owned by the group of radiologists that work at Mercy Medical Center. IMI is yes owned by some Gem State Radiologists. St. Alphonsus and St. Luke's staff work every day with people who have no insurance or cannot pay fully. Most of the "profit" that these facilities make goes back into the community and or back into the buildings and equipment to try and compete with money driven doctor's that have opened their own facilities that have radiology or lab or anything else that you used to have to go the hospital to recieve. Case in point, the 20+ orthopaedic surgeons complaining that they are not getting enough reimbursement from Blue Cross and increasing the cost to the patients they see and refusing to see others that can't pay. In addition to the ortho surgeons complaining they aren't getting enough reimbursement they are in fact building a brand new (another care facility) hospital on lower Fairview Avenue for INSURED ONLY patients. So the next time you readers go to the doctor and they are able to do everything there for you remember that they are also money hungry people. Just they pocket all of it. Boise Weekly you just lost my readership.
